The theatre rendition of Il filo di mezzogiorno by Goliarda Sapienza – edited by Ippolita di Majo – is a perfect example of the adaptation of a complex, stratified, and extremely fascinating text by an author/actress whose writing possesses a strong, intrinsically performative vocation. This conversation with the dramaturg follows the steps of her embracing of Goliarda Sapienza’s novel and allows us to put into focus the approaches she took in her intense, passionate work of conversion into a theatre pièce, as well as in creating the characters and the stage background.
